Where your council tax goes

Your council tax bill is split between this council, Staffordshire County Council, Staffordshire Police and Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Authority.

Staffordshire Moorlands District Council (SMDC), Staffordshire County Council, Staffordshire Police Authority and Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Authority together deliver most of the local services in your area.

Some money is also paid to the Environment Agency in the form of a 'precept'.  

If you live in an area with a Parish Council, it too provides some local services. Please go to How much you pay for more information.

The council tax you pay is collected by Staffordshire Moorlands District Council (SMDC) on behalf of all the above authorities. The total amount is then divided between these authorities.
